Rep. Peter Torosain (R-NH), W1CBY, has learned from the chair of the House Science and Technology Committee dealing with HB 1644 that the bill will be sent to Interim Study, which effectively stops the bill in its current form.We must be vigilant in tracking this bill and how it evolves in the legislative process. The division leadership will continue to closely monitor for further developments and have asked New Hampshire Section Manager Peter Stohrer, K1PJS, as well as our friends in the New Hampshire legislature to keep us informed on further developments.

I wanted to bring New Hampshire HB1644 to the attention of New Hampshire hams. This legislation has the potential to significantly restrict the ability of NH Hams to erect antennas. You can register your opinion on this legislation prior to a hearing by the NH House Science and Technology Committee which is scheduled for TOMORROW. See the links below where NH residents can register their opinions online about this legislation before the committee hearing.
